    Diet for pancreatitis?

    Hello, My boxer gets bouts of pancreatitis. She has not had a flare up at all since I put her on Natural Balance reduced calorie. I did a lot of research on this a few yrs. back when we made the switch. I took the list of ingredients, percentages etc. into my vet to have him review it and he...

    2 male boxers in need of loving homes, West MI

    I hope this is the right spot to post this. I have a friend who is currently fostering 2 male boxers about two yrs. old that need a permanent home. They are both neutered, up to date on all shots etc. They are bonded so ideally she would like to find a home for both of them together, but will...

    pushing his paw in my face whilst lying down

    Odin often paws at me when he wants me to pet him or let him onto my lap. His sister never does this. It is quite cute and enduring but before giving into him he has to sit for a minute or do something else and then he is allowed to cuddle....I think it is sweet :)

    Mystery Illness

    So I thought Freyja had pancreatitis again but I took her to the vet today and her levels are normal. Vet gave her some Pepcid and said he could not find anything wrong with her. Maybe it was just GERD. I am very concerned. I know my baby is not herself, she has not even attempted to play...

    Clear nails changing color

    I think I have read somewhere on this board about yeast in the nails changing them colors. I noticed the same thing in my boy Odin's nails and asked the vet about it after reading the other post (which I honestly can't quote exactly what it was about) but I was concerned Odin may have an issue...

    pancreatitis - again ??

    I know we are not supposed to post directly to other members so I will not do that :) But I am hoping that some of the folks that gave my great advice on this before will come across this post and respond. Freyja had a bad bout with pancreatitis a few months ago and I think it may be starting...

    swollen eye and plugged up sniffer

    Took Odin back to the vet today and his lymph nodes in his legs were just fine. The Doc said it would have been strange for them to have been swollen so quickly from a bite and they wanted to get the bite swelling down to re-check them to see if they may have been swollen for fear of cancer ...
